    I may be wrong.

    There's already been a Grand Jury investigation.
    I may be wrong.

    Did someone say that he didn't?
    I may be wrong.

    no, in fact the hypocrites were in such a rush to crucify Paterno that McQueary's father was never even mentioned. even though he was the first one to be informed.

    McQueary's father should have insisted that his son call the cops that night and not allowed him to wait until the next day to tell Paterno. but let's forget about that and hang Paterno for not doing enough

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I didn't say that they didn't report it. I merely repeated what the Grand Jury investigation said which is that it wasn't reported to the appropriate agencies.
    If you know more about the affair than the GJ, please share how you came to be so informed.
    I may be wrong.

    Yes, a link would be great. I've read the grand jury's report and various accounts about the disappearance of the DA in 2005 (Ray Crigar, and although strange and mysterious, this may just be bizarre coincidence) but don't know what the state police commissioner has said.

    I too would like to see a link.

    By law, people who work directly with children are required to report child abuse they witness - or hear about - within 48 hours to a state-funded child abuse hotline or law enforcement.

    "Pennsylvania law requires mandated reporters to turn in abuse," York City Church Pastor Aaron Anderson said. Anderson is a member of the advisory board of Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania. "But there's no law for training mandated reporters. There's a general ignorance about what do I do with this."


    Did Paterno do enough to report sex abuse? - The York Daily Record

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
